3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A clear medium golden with a faint head. Aroma is corn, bananna, mild spice. Flavor is quite refreshing with spice, malts, bananna. The body was sort of flat but still pretty tasty overall.

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
I found this beer to be nearly perfect. Prehaps it has a litle less clove and buble gum then a German, but the crispness and bannana notes were there. I find nothing wrong wuth ut at al other then it being not distinctive. Instead it is a fine beer of it’s style which yes should be clasified more as an Amercian what because of a faint hint of bitterness. Still to me the differences in the various wheats can be subtle. It seems unfair that some have docked the ratings on here for it being called a hefe which at least on the bottle it isn’t.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Appearance: Pours a cloudy yellow body with a thin white head.
Smell: Banana, cloves, and lemon in an altogether weak, musty aroma.
Taste: Stale soda crackers with just a scant bit of banana ester and a tiny dash of clove on the light, minerally finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Medium carbonation.
Drinkability: Pretty tame and umimpressive. A hefe-lite, if you will.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: AUG 27, 2007 This poured from the bottle to a hazy golden orange, with small white head that dissipated quickly to little lacing. Nose was cookie dough and some wheat, though no spices as I would have expected. Mouthfeel was slightly thick and chewy, and the flavor was mostly wheat dough, again with no spice.
Not a bad beer on a hot summer day, just not great.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Picked up a single 12-oz bottle from The Coffee Grounds in Eau Claire, Wisconsin. Pours a semi clear golden blonde brew with a fast dissolving white head that leaves behind no ring or any lacing. Too clean of a dissolve. Aroma of light wheat and multi-grain malt, some cirtus and a touch of banana. Taste is light to medium bodied, light carbonation with some banana and sweet bread-like malt flavors. Finish is slightly sweet, some mild bitter and a nice banana aftertaste after the finish.

Nice looking pale amber, high white head. Lively aromas - light spice, some citrus, some banana. Light but balanced flavors, no flaws.

Not a bad American Wheat. This is NOT a Hefe -- too bitter for that. Nice feel though, and a smooth taste that is good for summertime drinking. Competes well IMHO with the NG and Capital Wheats.

12 oz. bottle courtesy of Bockyhorsey - Pours a hazy golden color with a 1/2 finger thick off white head. Aroma is light banana. Flavor is light banana and light citrus. Light to medium body. Nothing fancy, but worth a try. Thanks Wendy and Bill.

1.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle in my small Ayinger glass: Pours a clean golden hue with a small lasting fizzy head and minimal lace. The aroma has notes of white grapes, sour apples, very light banana esters along with some AMERICAN wheat and yeast vapours. Yep the first taste confirms that this is more an American wheat and not a Hefeweizen at all. Sure I found a yeasty and wheat tone but far too much acidity and base pale grains and not enough depth. The mouth feel is equally lame and tepid. Pass on this and grab a New Glarus wheat beer instead.
